Why join an Association?
It is an essential of the education and teaching professional that we must never stop learning.
The best learning is done together. Associations are powerful places where this can happen.
Not only can you learn from others, others can learn from you.
Often your colleagues can inspire you to reach new heights, to try things you have never tried before. Associations provide this collegiality and they also provide common sense down to earth advice and support.
The importance of learning with others is recognised in the AITSL National Professional Standards for Teachers, particularly standards 6 and 7.
Joining an association will also put you into an online world where you can connect, discuss and communicate.
